Protection for Your Intellectual Property
Trademarks identify you to the world and are crucial marketing tools as you maneuver in commerce. Trademarks include trade names, service marks, and trade dress, anything that is sufficiently distinctive to associate a particular good or service to you as the source.
It is important to retain experienced trial counsel to assist with the factual investigation and strategy development phases of a case involving the alleged violation of trademark rights under state unfair competition laws and the federal Lanham Act.
Even before litigation begins, the process is fraught with risks for the unprepared. Trademark disputes often generate cease and desist letters. If those letters are ill-considered in any aspect, they can be a weapon for the other wide. In the past, we have ended the threat of litigation against our client by exploiting the errors in the opponent's cease and desist letter. We saved our client the expense and risk of litigation by adept maneuvering at the pre-litigation phase.
When litigation comes, the injunction hearing, which typically occurs very early in the process, frequently dictates the outcome of the entire case. We have had experience in the quick-paced and demanding skill of litigating temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions. Ultimately, our success depends upon our ability to translate the facts and law so that the decision maker, whether the judge or a jury, understands our client's trademark case. That is the hallmark of a successful trial lawyer, and we apply those skills in all aspects of IP, including trademark law.
A trademark is only as valuable as its strength, and its strength is maintained through owner vigilance against would-be poachers. Bring us in early and make us your partners in protecting your valuable intellectual property.
